    Need some help

    Not my first pool, but first without a multiport. Only has the jandy valves and a handle that turns right at the filter. I'm not sure of backwashing, no backwash hose connected. Any ideas/hints appreciated!

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    You filter has a push/pull backwash valve. The pipe out the bottom that goes into the ground is your backwash pipe. Figuring out where it goes is up to you to figure out

    Oh, boy!
    Do i need to close any valves before I open this one up?
    Wonder where this goes. I'm guessing into a drain pipe, somewhere!
    Thanks.

    I would not think there are any other valves.
    I think you just have to turn the handle and pull up and then turn it to lock it up? Been 8 years since I have used a valve like that and I can't remember.
